If a sunflower blooms in a city, does it make a difference? - Columbia Chronicle
McHugh has a background in clean energy and once created fuel out of cooking oil. He wanted to test what growing a biofuel crop in contaminated soil would do.
“We looked at sunflowers grown in contaminated soils and if we could produce a seed oil that remained free of lead and other contaminants,” McHugh said.
Sunflowers were chosen because they can grow well even in contaminated soils, McHugh said. They can also contribute to clean energy and product development through the use of sunflower oil.
The experiment soon became secondary, McHugh said.
When the sunflower heads turned downward for the first time in 2012, McHugh knew it was time to harvest them. But he found the residents of the Washington Park neighborhood wanted the sunflower patch to become a permanent fixture.
“Over time, I realized that there was something more important than a technical-scientific research project,” McHugh said. “There was something that took precedence over that, and that was what can natural beauty do for neighborhoods.”
In addition to being beneficial for wildlife, green spaces in urban areas are also important for “our own human benefit and emotional well-being” to break up what is otherwise a concrete jungle, said Michele Hoffman-Trotter, adjunct faculty member in the Science and Mathematics Department.
In Chicago, groups such as Chicago Eco House, 6439 S. Peoria St., are using urban agriculture to beautify neighborhoods while educating residents. When living in an urban environment, it can be easy to disconnect from Mother Nature, said Quilen Blackwell, president of Chicago Eco House.
Because of this, the group is there to establish a new connection between human beings and nature by turning vacant lots into 100% sustainable flower farms.
“The industry in the United States is pretty small for flowers; about 80% of the flowers that you see at the market com... Oct 15, 2020

'Once you’ve grown borage in your garden, you’ll never be without it' - HouseBeautiful.com
Rhubarb Rhubarb: A correspondence between a hopeless gardener and a hopeful cook
Award-winning garden designer, Jo Thompson, released her new book, Rhubarb Rhubarb back in May. The book is written alongside lifelong friend and Leiths-trained cook, Mary-Jane Paterson, as she helps MJ become more confident with gardening and planting, while she herself gets tips on how to improve her cookery skills.Here, Jo and Mary Jane discuss the joys of edible flowers.Dear Cook,I was totally amazed when I discovered cornflowers are edible?! Marigolds, nasturtiums (lovely and peppery) and borage (great to pop in an ice cube in that well-deserved G&T) are super easy to grow. Once you’ve grown borage in your garden, you’ll never be without it. You can always start it off in the veg patch but rest assured, or be aware, as the case may be, that it will self-seed everywhere. Its big hairy stems and leaves aren’t necessarily the prettiest, but they do look quite at home in a wild-ish border so try to keep them t... Aug 3, 2020
Marilyn Lee Ward, 97, practiced organic gardening long before it became fashionable - Williamsburg Yorktown Daily
When rain or cold weather forced her inside, Marilyn liked to knit, crochet, do needlework, sew and bake. Her cookie jar was well stocked, in case one of her children or grandchildren dropped in.
Marilyn so loved being a mother to five, Tom of Washington, D.C, Bob of Virginia Beach, Sue Miller of Elizabeth City and Sally of Virginia Beach. In 1969, her son Jim was killed in action in Vietnam. When people would say they were sorry to hear she had lost her son, she would always answer back, “I haven’t lost him. I know right where my Jim is.” It was this grief that drove her deeper into God’s word and to a stronger commitment to Jesus Christ. If motherhood suited her, becoming a grandmother was an even better fit. She and her husband Tom would drop everything to answer the needs of any of her children or grandchildren. Their home provided a place of structure, consistency and traditional values. She is survived by six grandchildren, Jim Miller of Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, Mary Muntz of Greensburg, Kansas, Dave Ward of Warrington, Pennsylvania, Sarah Ward of Virginia Beach, Margaret Madrone of El Prado, New Mexico, and Duncan Ward of Hyattsville. She had 11 great-grandchildren.
Marilyn began losing her memory during her mid 1980s, and her life became lighter as the past fogged in her mind. She forgot to miss the loved ones she had lost, forgot to be self-conscious or worry about how others perceived her, becoming childlike in many ways. Each day offered new perspectives and adventures, even as she re-visited once familiar places and ideas. Marilyn forgot she had arthritis. She forgot she was old. She forgot she had heart failure. For the first time in her life she began to truly relax,...
